2009 - A Year To Nikeit...


Keep losing weight at a slow but steady pace and keep exercising - don't want any backlash from losing too much too fast - want this to be permanent and want to be stronger physically! Although I am pretty damn strong right now - how many 53 year olds can actually unload trucks and stack pallets 3 morning a week?!?! With NO mechanical assistance I might add!!!!

Weighing in ideas?
I am just wondering about weighing in - what works best for you guys?

I know that if I weigh myself everyday I drive myself crazy with the little ups and downs (which are often just changes in my fluid levels anyway - these are either so exciting or so depressing - but NOT real weight changes!).

If I don't weigh myself everyday it is easier to eat a lot right after a weigh in and then try to starve right before the next one so it looks like I lost weight (this also may or may not be real gain or loss - I think usually NOT a loss!).

Just curious what works best for other people.

No - it means you are a normal person - I would have done the same. There is nothing wrong with liking nice things. What a dark world it would be if nobody ever wanted them!

Getting to KNOW YOU, la la la laaa la laaa laaa
Hi, I am from San Antonio, TX - and I used 'nikeit' as my screen name because of Nike's slogan 'Just Do It' - and that is exactly what I need to do in the weight loss battle!

I guess many people in the US don't give their country because we all go by our states here. I lived in Minnesota for years and don't remember Canadians saying Canada either - just their provinces. It might be because our countries are so large compared to many European countries that aren't divided up like ours are. Just a guess - Nice to meet you - I LOVE Canada - especially Alberta around Waterton Park!
